Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Air Force (IAF) on Friday signed an agreement for production of computerised pilot selection system (CPSS).



Force (IAF) on Friday signed an agreement for production of computerised pilot selection
system (CPSS).

The embedded micro controller based CPSS having built-in security features captures accurate, reliable and high-speed data relating to the skills of candidates appearing for
selection as pilot, a DRDO release said here.

The state-of-the-art system, an outcome of collaborative efforts of DRDO and the IAF, comprehensively evaluates qualities required for a highly demanding job of a military
pilot such as psychomotor skills, information processing skills (speed and accuracy), coordination, visualisation, time-sharing by subjecting the candidate to perform concurrent multiple tasks, the release said.

The system has been designed with built-in diagnostic facilities for easy maintenance and trial runs for IAF.

Hardware for the system has been developed by Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), Bangalore, while software for cognitive and psychomotor tests has been developed by Defence Institute of Psychological Research (DIPR), Delhi.

Signing of Agreement between DRDO and the IAF for supplying Computerised Pilot Selection System would make the selection system more reliable and pave the way for its
introduction in all the Air Force Selection Boards.

The agreement was signed by Air Cmde SBP Sinha, Principal Director (Acquisition) on behalf of IAF and Dr Manas K Mandal, Outstanding Scientist and Director, DIPR, who represented the
DRDO.
